In an ambitious bid to expand its reach even to consumers on the go, Google Inc. on 5th Jan unveiled the widely anticipated Nexus One smart phone as it launched a bold new business model that could shake up the mobile phone industry. The launch of the new phone, Google's first venture in selling a consumer electronics device, marked a major salvo against Apple Inc.'s hugely popular iPhone and Research in Motion's BlackBerry.
The HTC-built and Google-sold device runs Android 2.1 atop a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, a 3.7-inch, 480 x 800 display, has 512MB of ROM, 512MB of RAM, and a 4GB microSD card (expandable to 32GB). Its large screen and 32GB memory card are good for watching videos, If you want to rock your Nexus one with your favorite DVD movies on the go, you should use an additional conversion tool to convert DVD to Motorola Droid supported video format, for DVD movies are CSS protected usually.
So first you should be clear about what kinds of formats are supported by your Droid. Here I list all the supported video/audio formats playable on Motorola Droid.
